Have you always wanted to write an original song, but don’t know where to start? Or perhaps you have been writing songs for years and would like a different perspective. Wherever you are in your musical journey, you are welcome in this course! Join singer songwriter Caroline Cotter for an adventure in songwriting that explores the power of songs and provides different approaches to crafting a song that truly speaks to your ideas and emotions. Caroline shares her own process on finding inspiration and crafting songs that have the power to move you and others. There will be opportunities for free writing, listening and dissecting songs from all genres, song sharing, group feedback, co-writing, and lots of experimenting in a supportive and safe environment. For a final project students will present their final work in their choice of an audio recording, video recording, or live performance. Evaluation will be based on class participation, completion of written assignments, and the final project.
